To the Editor:
Just to set the record straight, this is an addition to the story last week about the Erie Philharmonic concerts in the coming weeks in Gibson Park.
Among the many local sponsors of these events is Holy Cross Church, joining its neighbors on Main Street as another “founding partner” of this series. The church joined the effort too late to get into the press release, but we wanted the North East community to know that our longstanding commitment to fostering the arts in our town has extended to these events too.
Like the other partners, we will be providing in-kind as well as financial support to the performing groups, and are delighted to do so. We believe that “music is a fair and glorious gift of God” and nourishes the human spirit as much as the food, clothing and other needs that we provide nourish the body.
Thanks to the Phil for coming out to us, and thanks to the many supporters who have made it possible. We are glad to be included among them.
— Rev. Carol Carlson, Holy Cross Church
